MIKE LAWRENCE is a New York City based comedian who has been featured as a stand-up on TBS’ Conan, and Comedy Central’s John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show and The Half Hour.

He wrote and performed a segment for FX’s Totally Biased and has appeared on Comedy Central’s @midnight. Mike has also been featured on many notable podcasts, including the Adam Carolla Show, WTF with Marc Maron, You Made it Weird with Pete Holmes and the Artie Lange Show. When he’s not working in NYC’s best clubs or headlining on the road he can be seen featuring for the likes of John Oliver, Marc Maron and Tom Papa (who, shortly thereafter, hired Lawrence as a writer for his pilot).

Mike was a Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival “New Face” in 2010 and performed with JFL in both Chicago and Montreal in 2012, where he recorded a set for HBO Canada’s Funny as Hell. His debut album “Sadamantium” was released by Comedy Central Records in conjunction with the debut of his half hour special in 2013.

About Jenna Zine
After spending a year attending shows at Portland’s Helium Comedy Club, Jenna finally admitted aloud, “I want to do this too!” She started actively pursuing the laughs by taking numerous classes at The Brody Theater and ComedySportz.

Soon her experience in marketing and event planning reared its head and she formed Jenna Zine Presents, putting on curated shows such as Keep It Like A Secret with Jackpot! Recording Studio owner Larry Crane (who happens to be her husband – which sure keeps renting the studio at a nice, low cost!), and Comedians & Comedies, an ongoing series that features live standup paired with a comedy film screening. She’s honored to have been able to book so many talented comedians at her events, including Ted Alexandro, Dan St. Germain, Kate Berlant, Amy Miller, Barbara Holm, Shane Torres, Dax Jordan, Sean Jordan, Alex Falcone, and many more.

Jenna is a former member of the Romance Writers of America who still puts “finishing that damn book!” on her to-do list. She has a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology, which she’s never used but has somehow managed to drain her bank account for more than a decade. She is grateful that she’s been led to comedy, which she now considers as essential to her life as breathing – though, thankfully, she hasn’t been forced to choose between the two.
